SF8 Update: Prosecutor wants Judge to reconsider sending Herman and Jalil back to NY

The prosecutor in the San Francisco 8 case will ask Judge Moscone to reconsider his order to transfer Herman Bell and Jalil Muntaqim back to New York for their parole hearings. California State Attorney Druliner is requesting a reversal of an arrangement that took several meetings and two court hearings to work out, ultimately resulting in a judicial order that was filed weeks ago.

In the meantime both men have been preparing for their parole appearances in New York.

The hearing which will consider the state's motion to reconsider will be heard on Wednesday, June 18th at 9:30 am at 850 Bryant Street in San Francisco.

Also scheduled for next Wednesday, June 18th and Thursday the 19th will be the first of several conditional examinations of prosecution witnesses that are either old or in poor health. The witness scheduled is Gus Coreris who is a former SF homicide inspector and was one of the first people at the scene at the Ingleside police station in 1971.
